Revenge Porn

I had no idea there was even a name for it.  But that's the name.  From the Daily Beast: 

Shockingly, almost no legal sanctions existed previously for those engaged in the hideous phenomenon of "revenge porn," in which jilted men (and let's be honest: it's almost always men)disseminate nude photos and videos of women who clearly had not guessed that they were involved with a person who might have a penchant for disseminating nude photos and videos when jilted. And, with the exception of a few states, neither did sanctions exist for the scumbags attempting to make money off of hosting collections of previously private pornography.

Here's NY's first case about revenge porn.  This generation of law students already seems to know quite a bit about it.
